Tech Toolbox: StudyStack Flashcards

Study Stack is fantastic. The wonderful @gnarcue first introduced me to it. Initially, I wasn’t so sure it would become part of my regular technology diet.

Things I have used Study Stack for so far:

Things I plan to do next year:

Explore the search functions of the flashcards with my tutees to see what they can find for other subjects.

Continue getting my students to create flashcards and promote the use of them for study and revision.
